14 Oct 2018: David de Gea's camp believes he would sign contract extension

Earlier, it was being reported that United goal-keeper David de Gea is reluctant to sign a contract extension with the Red Devils.

This is because he believes United won't be able to win the top prizes in near-future.

However, it has now emerged that the Spanish custodian might change his tough stance.

He, recently, said he was really happy to be at United.

Real Madrid: Why did his transfer to Real Madrid fall through?

Interestingly, David's transfer to Real Madrid was agreed upon in 2015, but a technical glitch saw the deal fall through.

On the last day of the transfer window, United, due to a problem with the fax machine, could not get the necessary documents to Spanish Football Federation Headquarters before the deadline.

Wasting no time, United extended the contract of the Spanish international.
